What you need:

  • A full bottle of DRY WHITE wine
  • 1 cup of dark rum
  • 3 apples
  • 6 cups of apple cider 
  • 1⁄2 cup of caramel sauce 
  • Sparkling water 
  • LED ice cubes also known as boogie lights


Wash and chop apples into pieces and place into a large glass pitcher. Gala, ambrosia, pink lady, and golden delicious apples work well.

Add the entire bottle of dry white wine, dark rum, caramel sauce, and apple cider to the glass pitcher. Stir and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. 

Pour a little sparkling water in the glasses of sangria before serving. 

Brandy is a great substitute for dark rum and the boogie lights are optional.
